Your Love Horoscope For The Weekend of December 24-25, 2016
We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each week. This week's topic: your weekend love horoscope for Dec. 24 to 25.
The Moon continues her trip through passionate and murky Scorpio this weekend, which could make for some steamy encounters (for better or worse) over the holidays, especially as the possessive Scorpio Moon squares off with free-spirited Venus in Aquarius late Saturday night. However, there are a few bright spots this weekend, which includes the Moon chumming it up with communicative Mercury (retrograde in Capricorn), which could have us all in a sentimental mood. Meanwhile on Sunday, Venus in Aquarius makes nice with Jupiter in romantic Libra, Uranus in passionate Aries, and commitment-oriented Saturn in Sagittarius. Under this influence, we should find it easier to find silver linings and a loving embrace in the face of even the darkest of challenges. When the Moon enters Sagittarius late Saturday night, we'll be ready to come out of the depths of our feelings for some lighthearted fun.
Read below to find out what this weekend's stars means for your love life.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may hear from an ex this weekend, but know that this is more about self-reflection than a reconciliation. Recognize that this person's reappearance is to remind you of how far you've come and why you should never look back. Keep pushing forward.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This could be a good weekend to walk down memory lane for you and your boo. Visit someplace that has sentimental meaning for you two or re-enact your first date. If you're single, don't spend the weekend alone. Call on your best friends for some warmth and cheer.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
This is a good weekend to sit down with your mate and set some plans for the future. Though there may be a chance that you two may not have the exact goals in mind, know that it's not your job to control what they do but to determine how you can do it together.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A quiet weekend getaway could be just what you and your love need, though there's no need to go and try to break the bank on a fancy trip. Keep it budget- friendly or make it a staycation. Single? Exploring a new city or a new area could invite love.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You might not see eye to eye with your partner this weekend as something from the past could throw a wrench in your best laid of plans or intentions. Though try not to let this ruin your mood. Let communication and a calm, rational approach save the day.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
If you feel like you've been picking up too much of the slack where your relationship is concerned, it may be time to speak up and say so instead or brooding or resorting to pettiness. If someone steps over your boundaries, it's OK to let them know.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You have an idea of what you want when it comes to love, but you may not always stick to those values when it comes down to your actual relationships. This weekend you may need to reevaluate how your own inconsistency can invite inconsistent lovers.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If you and your love want to have a good time this weekend, you may need to skip the family functions and create your own holiday traditions as the chances for some family-fueled drama are higher than usual. Single? Use this weekend to help you break free of unstable relationships.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You might want to tame some of that Sagittarius bluntness this weekend if you want to keep the love flowing. While this doesn't mean that you should stew on something that's bothering you, you may just find another way to say it. You can get your point across without the bulldozer.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
This would be a good weekend for you and your partner to go over financials for the upcoming year and determine what's in and what's not in your budget when it comes to future plans. While you may feel a bit discouraged by what comes up, a financial opportunity could present itself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Could the promise or ideal of someone you've been seeing (or thinking of seeing) be more attractive than the actual thing? While you consider yourself to be a realist, even you sometimes can get caught up in the hype. Similarly, you may need to reconcile what you want and what's expected of you.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
While love is important to you, now may not be the time for getting entangled with someone new, especially if this person and their values aren't in alignment with the person that you're becoming. Love is on the way, but you don't have to compromise who you are for it.
